Doesn't look like much from the outside, but terrific statues and frescos inside. Can photograph the statues, but not the main fresco. Small, but very much worth a visit.

A somewhat bland exterior conceals a wonderful interior, full of beautiful paintings and frescoes. The Baglioni chapel is the undoubted highlight, where you can spend several minutes surrounded by Pinturicchio's world-famous frescoes. We managed to spend 25 minutes in the chapel, thanks to a steady...More

The Baglioni Chapel is simply stunning: distilled beauty, the kind of which you only seldom get to lay your eyes on.

This is truly a magnificent place of worship, even if one is not a Catholic, it is a most impressive place to visit and meditate. The richnesss of the architecture, the incredible craftsmanship are truly astounding.

There is a flat, new section of the city at the base of the hill. Find parking there. You might be able to find parking at the very top, and walk down.
